you might find the 'Bertsongs' thread on Mudcat of interest.

Now, the name of that poster rings a bell; Brian Peters? Wasn't he the person mentioned in the post in this thread on 16 Jul 18 - 12:09 PM? Wasn't he the person that remade a version of Barbara Allen around a tune and a verse collected by Cecil Sharp from the black singer, Aunt Maria Tomes? He was? Ah, that means that we can add the name of Peters to those of Lloyd, Carthy and Bellamy as those guilty of Traditional Song Reconstructivism
